The NKP was founded in 1957 as a merger of the Conservative Party, National Liberal Party and the Catholic Social Party in order to create a big-tent party of the right. The NKP held government several times in the 20th century promoting centre-right and Sotirian democratic policies. It was in opposition from 1979 to 1999 before coming back to power under Rasa Šimonytė, the first Ruttish and female Chancellor who oversaw the Weranian response to the Great Recession. The party came back to power in 2019 under Otto von Hößlin who has supported a more national conservative and euclesceptic position.

A merger of the Social Democratic Party of Werania and the Radical Party in 1977 the SRPO was intended to serve as a centre-left counterpart to the NKP in order to facilitate the creation of a two-party system. The SRPO first came to power in 1979 under Ludolf Ostermann who would become Werania's longest serving Chancellor in 100 years. Initially aligned with the socialist OSAI the party embraced third way politics during the 1980's overseeing economic liberalisation. The party lost power in 1999 entering government again in 2011 in a coalition with liberal parties. In 2019 the party suffered its worst result since 1999.

Founded in 1977, the Green Party has been represented in the Weranic Reichstag since 1987 following increased awareness of environmental issues. The Greens have risen in terms of support since the 2005 recession due to their progressive politics but has never served in the federal government albeit has helped run governments in the federal states. The Green party became the third largest political force in the 2019 elections attaining roughly the same support as the SRPO.

The Modern Centre Party was founded in 1972 following the student protests that year by a group of student activists and intellectuals who espoused a common programme of radicalism, liberalism and political reform. The PMZ entered government in 1983 with the SRPO where they promoted economic and social liberalism, going into opposition in 1999. They reformed a coalition government with the SRPO in 2011 as the junior partner where they pushed through austerity policies to reduce public expenditure. The PMZ lost power alongside the SRPO in 2019. They tend to be the most pro-Euclean of all the Weranic parties being in favour of a federal Euclea.

The Democratic Alternative was formed in 1985 by right-wing members of the National Consolidation Party dissatisfied with the party leadership. The DA contains a mixture of national conservatives, national liberals, libertarians and populists but is broadly united by a strong souverainiste policy towards the Euclean Community, supporting an exit from the organisation. The DA since 2019 serves in the federal government as the junior partner to the NKP.

A party that exclusively runs in Ruttland, the NNK was formed in 1999 by businessmen Arvydas Ražauskas. Its main position is the establishment of an independent Ruttish republic and is considered the main separatist party in the free state. On other policies it is considered populist supporting a broadly progressive economic policy coupled with conservative social policies and strong environmentalist positions. It formed the Ruttish regional government from 2008-2012 and since 2019 is the biggest party in Ruttland.

The oldest party in Werania, the OSAI during the first half of the 20th century was one of the major socialist parties in Euclea being supportive of orthodox socialism, albeit representing a more reformist path then Swetanian and Marolev socialists. It declined following the emergence of the SRPO and the Green parties with changes in the structures of the economy seeing a general decline in union based labour the OSAI relied on for its support base. It is still close to the General Federation of Weranic Workers' (ABOA), the second largest federation of trade unions in Werania.

Formed in 1937 in order to counter left-wing parties in Ruttland, the SDT runs solely in Ruttland. Founded with close connections to the Ruttish clergy throughout the latter half of the 20th century it established itself as the largest party in Ruttland alongside the Social Democratic Party-Labour Union (the SRPO's branch in Ruttland) and the NKP. It also served in federal governments from 1999-2011 and 2015-2019 and provided parliamentary support for governments from 1963-1972. Although formed as an ultraconservative party the SDT has since been seen as a pragmatic force serving in coalition with conservatives, liberals and socialists.

A far-right party, the OVFP are the modern forebearers of the Völkisch movement which has roots in the pre-unification states of Werania. They were formed in 2005 as a response to the Euclean financial crisis being led by Albrecht Ströher becoming briefly the fifth largest party in 2007 but have declined since. The OVFP are the only party that supports the unification of all Weranic lands, specifically Cisvetania in Swetania.

Being representative of the Aldman community, the AFP mainly is concentrated on the Estmerish border in Cislania. A centrist party that is broadly liberal and pro-Euclean, the AFP often serves as a coalition partner for the Cislanian government due to its ideology flexibility.

A loose political grouping rather then a coherent political party, the Leftist Bloc tended to represent the liberal wing of Weranian politics. They were strong under Ulrich von Bayrhoffer who supported a form of liberal nationalism that would unite the Weranic lands - however following the War of the Triple Alliance the Leftist Bloc declined due to the upsurge of conservatism. The Leftist Block would also be threatened by the far-left that morphed into the socialist movement. The Leftist Bloc collapsed when its majority wing formed the Radical Party and its minority wing the National Liberals.

A loose political grouping rather then a coherent political party, the Rightist Bloc tended to represent the conservative wing of Weranian politics. The Rightist Bloc increased in strength during the mid 19th century. The bloc was divided between more absolutist and more liberal factions that meant despite its dominance in the Bundestag it often was not an effective political bloc. As a whole it tended to oppose social reforms and support bureaucratic control. The bloc split into two organised political parties in 1900 - the National Liberals and Conservatives.
Republican Bloc

A loose political grouping rather then a coherent political party, the Republicans were those who supported the reestablishment of a Weranian republic and were mainly made up of members of the Septemberists. A failed Septemberist uprising led to a collapse of the republican movement in 1856, leading to the republican bloc in the Bundestag to be marginalised. The rise of socialist parties in the 1880's saw the Republicans beginning to include them under their parliamentary bloc. In 1898 the majority of republicans joined the new radical party and in 1911 the remaining parliamentary delegates joined the radicals.

The first Weranian socialist party, the OSP was created by the esteemed scholar Ludwig Vollmar. The OSP contained a variety of political opinions but tended to be more revolutionary then other socialist parties, supporting both scientific socialism and syndicalism. It was commonly accused of impossibilism by its opponents. The OSP joined with the Weranian Socialist Workers' Party in 1901 to form the Weranic Section of the Workers' International.

The JRP was formed in 1876 following the failure of Chancellor Franz Gustav von Reichenstein to extend home rule to Ruttland. Comprised primarily of Ruttish intellectuals the JRP was part of a general movement that revived the Ruttish language and cultural aspects, being firmly rooted in liberal assumptions. The JRP pushed for home rule albeit factions within it favoured outright independence. The JRP was dissolved in 1930 during the Great War after the Weranic government feared it would side with the Gaullican-backed Ruttish Republic.

The OSAP was formed in 1890 by Joachim Heisenberg in opposition to the OSP's "impossibilism" with Heisenberg promoting a more gradualist course for socialist politics and cooperation with bourgeois parties. The OSAP merged with the OSP in 1901 into the Weranic Section of the Workers' International.

The radical party was founded as the first organised political party in Werania representing radicals, liberals and republicans. The party led progressive governments from 1903-8 and 1911-13 but lost its pre-eminent position on the left after the rise of the socialist OSAI party due to the Great Collapse. The RP was a member of the popular front government of 1915-1918 but soon began to participate in various centre-left, centrist and right-wing governments. The foundation of the PMZ in the 1970's led to the radicals to decline in support and merge with the social democrats to form the SRPO in 1977.

The OKP was formed from former members of the Right Bloc who supported a strong role for the monarchy. From its creation the OKP was marginalised as the Catholic Social Party became the main right-wing force. The party participated in several cabinets most notoriously when its leader Hermann von Ratzinger promoted authoritarian policies. Having strong support from dietsmen from the colonies the OKP led the governments during the 1940's when they implemented authoritarian policies. The OKP's extreme anti-socialism led to a worsening of relations with Kirenia and eventually the start of the Kirenian-Weranian War. The loss of that war led to the ousting of the OKP dominated government and they became ostracised from government, suffering a steep decline as a result.They merged into the NKP in 1957.

Founded by former members of the right and left blocs, the national liberal party was a core component of centrist and right-wing coalitions in the early 20th century. The NLP often represented moderate conservatives and liberals alike, although due to the rise of socialism and the decline of the radical party steadily moved to the centre-right throughout its existence. Like the OKP and KSP it was discredited by colonial wars and in 1957 merged into the NKP.

Founded by the Mayor of Wiesstadt Gustav de Maizière the KSP soon competed with the OSAI as the largest party of Werania gaining strong support from the Catholic church. A largely centrist party the KSP was a part of every government from 1914 to its dissolution in 1957 aside from the 1918-1922 Popular Front government becoming a pragmatic force with little fixed ideology. A strong supporter of a social market economy the KSP under its leader Konstantin Vogel was the main party to push for the creation of the NKP in 1957.

The SPO were founded in 1919 as the pro-war wing of the OSAI party that supported conflict with Swetania which the OSAI government had opposed. Although founded "supporting the revolutionary proletariat" the SPO soon moved to the right adopting a revisionist and reformist line. During the 1950's it formed the grand coalition between the OSAI and KSP before largely aligning with the OSAI and RP against the NKP. In 1977 it decided to merge with the RP to form the SRPO.

The OSU was created in 1914 after nationalist members of the OSAI were expelled for opposing a Popular Front strategy. Centred around Siegfried Höcker the OSU began to support national syndicalism, neo-socialism and a form of neo-Caciarellism that called for a small vanguard to secure a proletarian revolution. The OSU steadily moved to the right with some of its members joining the NVB but continued to be a marginal player in Weranic politics. It was dissolved in 1922 by the Weranic government after Höcker attempted a putsch against the Weranian government.

The NVB was created predominantly by a collection of national syndicalists from the OSU, former members of the conservatives and radicals within the OB. A quasi-functionalist party based around its leader August Vorbeck the NVB came first in the 1924 but failed to form government. During the Great War the NVB allied with Gaullica with 1927 creating the Volkhöfen Government which collaborated with Gaullica. The creation of the Ruttish Republic and continued demands for a "greater Werania" led to tensions between Vorbeck and Gaullica with Vorbeck being killed in 1930. In 1933 the NVB and Volkhöfen Government was dissolved by Gaullica with its cadres executed.

The TPP was created by a coalition of Ruttish nationalists in 1920 with its leader Zydrunas Biržiška splitting from the YTP. Although initially a national conservative party following the invasion of Werania during the Great War the party aligned with Gaullica and played a major role in the creation of the Ruttish Republic. The TPP soon modelled on Gaullica's Popular Party adopting functionalism and corporate statism mixing it with strident Ruttish nationalism that was anti-Weranic in character. The RS was dissolved in 1934 with the fall of the Ruttish Republic and murder of its last leader Rytis Sleževičius.

The DVP was formed from the right-wing of the Radical Party that refused to merge into the SRPO due to its socialist manifesto. The DVP would steadily decline in seats during the 1980's but refused to merge into other party's due to its "principled" stance in support for radicalism and classical liberalism. After losing its remaining seats in the 1996 election the party voted to disband itself on a federal level.

The RKP was formed when Democratic Alternative leader Egon Geisel announced in 2002 that the DA would leave the Rasa Šimonytė government by DA defectors who supported continuing to serve in the government. It mainly came from the more liberal wing of the DA that focused primarily on economic liberalism rather then immigration issues. In continued to serve in government after the 2003 and 2007 elections as a junior partner to the NKP. The 2005 financial crisis saw support for the party dissipate and in 2011 saw a huge decline in its votes. In 2015 it lost its remaining Reichstag elections leading to the party to dissolve itself in 2016.
